The Danbury Public School District has been planning an early college initiative with Western Connecticut State University and Naugatuck Valley Community College. Superintendent Dr Sal Pascarella says over the course of four years students can leave high school with an Associates Degree. Students would begin their collegiate programing as a freshman.
Coupled with internships, summer work, and some blended learning--students can then then matriculate into a four year university or go into the workforce with special certification.
If everything comes together, that program could start next September.
